Each loaf is made by hand the traditional way. The recipe technique is 40 pages long and takes at least 5 hours.
The business is 100% owned by Robert and Michael Lillegard. Robert is 5 years older, and when Michael was in 5th grade, he wrote a class essay about why Robert was his hero. That’s adorable.
Only Natural Ingredients
Our goal was to make the best bread possible, not to avoid certain ingredients. But it just so happens that the most traditional styles of bread are naturally vegan with no preservatives, additives, or dough conditioners--just flour, salt, water, and wild yeast!
Duluth's Best Bread is cold fermented and baked with high heat and high moisture for a true crust and a soft, chewy interior. The wild yeast gives it a natural tanginess and makes this a mild sourdough.
